Art was born and raised in Austin, TX, and married his high school sweetheart, Lita. They have three children: Jacob, Josiah and Abigail. The Lord saved him in February 2009 and immediately lead him to the communities of Northeast Austin where his family began reaching children and their families through their children's outreach ministry. They served in the communities of Northeast Austin from 2009-2015. In 2010, the Lord opened the door for Lita and Art to start working with refugees from Nepal. They help in every way they can and each week spend time with them. In 2012, the Lord spoke to Art through His Word and lots of prayer to reach the nations. In 2013, Art made his first trip to India, Nepal and Bhutan and has gone every year since to support the efforts of reaching the unreached in the Himalayas. His heart's desire is to see people reached with the Gospel - from our communities to all nations and unreached people groups.
